Everyone loves the Golden Galloping Horses! A feast for the eyes, this nostalgic print is reminiscent of so many happy childhood memories.
Made using the reduction print technique, printed from one block of lino in five layers of glorious coloured ink, this print is a celebration of all things vintage and nostalgic. Who hasn't begged for a turn on the Golden Galloping Horses? Set in an English market square, this scene is familar to riders young and old.
Reviving the traditional techniques of linocutting, the original prints were made from drawings which I transferred to lino, and made using the reduction technique in five colours. Finished with lettering hand printed using vintage letterpress type, the original prints were limited to a run of 20. I hope they will resonate with others who love a carousel, as well as those who appreciate the unique nature of a linocut print.
You can purchase an original print, or a poster. If ordering an original, this will be a handprinted limited edition, and will be numbered between 1-20. The originals have an incredible tactile quality and you can really see the layers of printmaking ink.
The posters sold are high quality digital reproductions of the original artwork on 300gsm card, made as an A4 or A3 poster (choose your preferred size when ordering). Whichever print you choose, it will be sent beautifully packaged in tissue, with a cardboard backing and cellophane sleeve to keep it protected.
